Dining room food was okay. Buffet was meh. Scrambled eggs tasted too buttery or maybe it was cooking oil.

Onboard Activities

Too chilly for the pool and hot tubs: bingo, casino, BB Kings Nightclub. These were all good. Was out on deck during the day or off ship for excursions. Not into Mahjong, Monopoly or puzzle making. Shows at night were meh.

Never left the ship because we were only in port for a short time. Would have been too rushed.
